Help Me (Gussow.mov)
INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE. A video tutorial focused on the 12-bar harmonica solo from Sonny Boy Williamson's most famous composition, "Help Me." Transcribed and arranged by Adam Gussow of Satan and Adam.
It's hard to overstate the importance of this solo, and this song. It's not just a top-25 desert-island cut for blues harp players around the world, but it's arguably the one blues harp classic that other blues players--guitarists, vocalists, you name it--all know. It comes up at virtually every jam session. It is part of the blues world's common stock.
Technical challenges include brisk triplets in a 3-against-2 rhythm; warbles; staccato (chuck-chuck) chording; and a bit of tricky timing. This video takes you inside the guts of Sonny Boy's style.
Harp key: B-flat
Note: a PDF tab for this lesson is also available.
